30% of American Republicans want to bomb Agrabah

Statistics indicate that 30% of Republican Americans want to bomb Agrabah, 41% of those who would vote for Donald Trump. Should you be confused geographically as to where that "Arabic"/"Muslim sounding city is, well, it is the city where Aladdin inhabited in the movie. Naturally, it is a fictive space. But hey, bombing a place - fictional or not - which sounds "Muslim" is an ethical duty it seems to the US. It also gives you a glimpse of the educational/cultural standards there sadly. Is it too ironic to end this post saying I had "Enola Gay" by OMD humming through my head as I wrote this post?
PS: To be fair, it seems 19% of Democrat Americans would bomb it too....
